Following an investigation by the Arlington County Police Department’s Gang Unit, four subjects have been charged with felony destruction of property after they caused extensive damage to Powhatan Springs Skate Park, according to a news release from the Arlington County Police Department.
On Saturday, June 7, it was reported that someone sprayed the Powhatan Springs Skate Park with graffit; the park is located in the 6000 block of N. Wilson Boulevard. The damage was so extensive that the park remained closed and won't reopen again until Saturday, according to the park Web site.
Parks and Recreation officials estimated the cost of the damage to be in excess of $35,000.
